Al-Bawaba (http://www.albawaba.com), a bilingual content provider in the Middle East, signed a contract with the government of Dubai to provide news and business content to the new e-government website (http://www.dubai.ae).

Visitors to the new e-government website will be able to apply for and to renew licenses and permits, and to perform a wide range of other bureaucratic processes that had previously demanded a personal visit to the government offices.

Anas Haddad, the Content Manager of the new Dubai e-government website, explains that the decision to add Al-Bawaba’s up-to-date news and business content to the e-government website is yet another indicator of the government’s commitment to provide its citizens with the best and the most useful services. “Our goal overall is to provide a full range of services answering the needs of our citizens and of guests to our country. As content manager of one of the first true e-governments to go online, it was important for me to ensure that users of the site get all the news and information they need in order to make the site a useful daily resource. We chose Al-Bawaba because they provide the scope of coverage and the Arab-centered reporting that we felt was most beneficial to our users.”

Al-Bawaba director Hani Jabsheh said that Al-Bawaba is particularly proud to be a part of the landmark website: “The new Dubai e-government website uses the power of the Internet to provide the public with information and services in a fast, convenient, and efficient manner. This is truly using the best that modern technology has to offer for the benefit of the citizens, and is a great step forward on an international scale. Al-Bawaba is honored to contribute to this important endeavor. The selection of Al-Bawaba by the Government of Dubai is a proud achievement, and a tribute to the accomplishments of our journalistic staff. The Government of Dubai will top the list of Al-Bawaba clients”.
